What if I face allegations of indecent exposure in Arizona?

While it might not fit into the worst possible connotations of sex crimes, those who are charged with indecent exposure in the state will still face a litany of penalties that can negatively affect their life. In fact, it can result in jail time and require them to be on a sex offender registry. In some cases, however, the allegations are unfair. The case might have been an accident of circumstances or some other mistake could have happened that made it appear as if the person was violating the law when there was no malicious intent. Understanding the law for indecent exposure and having a law firm that understands criminal defense is essential to addressing the charges.

There will be a charge of indecent exposure if the person exposes genitals, the anus, the nipple or areola of the breast when there is another person present and the individual behaved recklessly regarding the other person being in the area and that victim could express alarm or take offense from the exposure. It is important to remember that there will be no charge of indecent exposure if a mother is breast feeding a child and another person is in the vicinity and sees it.

If the indecent exposure involved exposing oneself to a person 15 and older, it is a Class 1 misdemeanor. It will be a Class 6 felony if the person has two or more convictions in the past for violating this law. Those who are arrested for indecent exposure of a person who is younger than 15 will be charged with a Class 6 felony. When there is a conviction of a felony indecent exposure and there were two or more felony convictions in the past with indecent exposure or public indecency with a minor who is under 15, it will be a Class 6 felony. Depending on the level of charges, there can be between six and 15 years in prison.

For those who do not believe that indecent exposure can result in harsh penalties, it is wise to understand that there can be long-term consequences for a conviction on these charges. In addition, it can negatively affect a person's professional and personal life even after they have completed their debt to society. A law firm that is experienced in sex crimes can help those who are dealing with these allegations, the possible damage to reputation and an aggressive prosecution. Calling for legal advice is key to combat these charges.
